Billed Cap
bill01.jpg

WW yarn and 6 MM hook

If you want to use a smaller hook just do more increase rows to get the size you want. My hat is about 7 inches in diameter. This pattern is a general “how to” so more stitches will not affect the overall effect.
Special stitch: Spike dc… done one row below
See illustration here:

Join all rounds until otherwise directed.

Row 1: ch 4, 11 dc in 4th ch from hook join in 4th ch. (12 dc)

Row 2: 2 dc in every dc. (24 dc)

Row 3: *2dc in 1, dc in next* rep to end. (36 dc)

Row 4: *dc in 2, 2 dc in next* rep to end (48 dc)

Row 5: * dc in 4 , 2dc in next* rep to end (58 dc) This will not work out evenly but the stitch count is correct.

Row 6: * dc in 1, Spike dc in row below* repeat to end. (29 dc, 29 Spike dc. Please note that you can skip the fancy stitches and just work evenly in dc if you prefer.

Row 7: dc evenly around. (58 dc)

Rows 8-11: hdc evenly around. Break off and tidy ends.

Mark out 15 stitches at the ‘front’ of your cap for the brim. You could do the brim with 2 strands to make it firmer. I think I would do so next time I try this. For the brim you will be working back and forth – no more joining. J

Attach yarn in first of selected sts…

B/row 1: 2 FPhdc in 1, FPhdc in 3, FPsc in 7, FPhdc in 3, 2FPhdc in last. (17 sts)

B/row 2: hdc in 4, sc in 9, hdc in 4.

B/row 3: sc evenly across
B/row 4-5: sc in 1st sc dec, sc to last 3 sts, sc dec, sc in last.

Work a row of single crochet down the side of brim rows, around hat and up and across the rest of the brim stitches. Break off and tidy all ends.

I do not have a problem with people/groups using my patterns to make a little extra money by physically making them and selling the items they make.

However, I do not permit the selling of my patterns for money. I have once given permission for a booklet to be made of them for a charitable sale and I may do so again *if I am asked* and if it is for a church, charity or school type group. But first you have to ask.

Furthermore, If you choose to use my patterns as a money maker, I do not permit my images to be used for any advertizing of your work. You must make your own item and photograph that. These images are as much a part of my Web image as a designer as the patterns are and I reserve that use to myself alone.

This is so cute, I will have to try it. I just started crocheting this year so the spike dc is something I never heard of.
Thanks for sharing

The link will show you a good pic of what it looks like so I don't think you would have trouble with it. However, as I said, you don`t need to use it if you don`t feel overly ambitious just yet.

But think how proud you would be if you did it :dance

:wlol

Very cute Darski. I made a cap like this a couple of years ago for my niece's baby boy. Did the bill the same way. Yours is very nice.

This is PERFECT! I love these types of hats for myself, and I really need one for the costume I'm putting together for my nephew, for which this will work perfectly.

Thanks so much for sharing. As soon as I'm done with the pants I'm working on for it, I'm going to get right to work whipping together one of these. :)

ok I made this last night. I do however think I have found a problem with the pattern, everything up to round 5 works out but round 5 does not. I re did it many times and ended with the same result, when i get to the end of round 5, after 2 dc (which would be #53 & #54 in one stitch I have only room for 3 more stitches. which does not work as according to the pattern I need to do 4 more dc's and 2 dc's in the next stitch. so according to the pattern I am supposed to end with 60 stitchs but I do not have room for them so I ended round 5 with dc's in the next 2 stitches and 2 dc is the last. gives me 58 like the pattern says. so I made it work.

hope this makes sense.

No... I should have said "however it works out" for row 5 as it is outside the standard circle pattern so you are to have the 58 sts. I purposely skipped the usual next row (dc in 3, 2dc in next) so that the hat would not get too large. :blush

I'll add that in now for others. I hoped the stitch count would demonstrate what I meant. :ty for mentioning this so I can make the note.

When in doubt... make a hat.      And feel free to *pin* me.

Thanks so much for the pattern Darski. I was wondering what it would be like made up in the suede yarn. It is very soft but stiff or I should say no give to it. I of course would have to use a bigger hook but my hubby does have a big head. What do you think?

That sounds like a good idea. :manyheart Post a pic when you get it done.

Please include your hook and yarn info for others. Thank you for a great idea for the pattern.

i have tried this hat and it works out great until i do the 'bill'
after i finish the 17 stitches across, then 17 more in rows 2 and 3... how many actual stitches am i left with at the end... 15 across?
i keep messing it up
and also.... is there any ch 1 anywhere before i start the next rows of the bill.... very frustrated!
my bill looks like its been in an accident... :P
